  1. Thank you Jane for sharing your knowledge with us. Like many of your readers, I too am struggling to lose the belly fat that I gained during menopause. Sometimes, just going back to basics, taking time to develop a plan that you can stick to and incorporating your input will definitely get us there. I believe the other important factor in all of this, is one’s mindset. It is so easy to convince yourself that you are too busy and never have time. Make time, you only have you and this life. Get invested!!

    1. Hi Doreen, Thank you for your comment. I absolutely agree. If ever there was a time for you to make the space it is now! I see this often. I have only been able to stay on top of my health etc because I have worked on my mind, and the work is ongoing. Thank you for the reminder I will make sure to highlight this more often.

Thank you so much

  3. I have gained 25-30 lbs from menopause and have tried just about everything. I go for daily walks. I have trouble sleeping a d I also have MS. I need help

    1. Lynn, thank you for commenting. What a difficult situation for you. I don’t have much experience of MS but I know that the experience of going through Menopause with MS can vary greatly for women. I would suggest that all the stategies for losing weight that you find on my site would still apply but I would encourage you to talk to your doctor about the weight. I suggest you look closely at your diet. How much wheat products do you eat? What about added sugar? Practice mindful activities like meditation and yoga which could help with the sleep and any stress I am sure you are experiencing. Are you able to lift weights at all? You could start with small ones and spend 20 minutes 2 to 3 times a week doing some strength exercises to build muscle. I hope this helps a little. Jane x
